    Seems to be a local Islamic group and later claimed by ISIS.
    Reported to be a lot of tensions between the majority Buddhists, Muslims and Christians. But not tensions to the extent of this reprisal and mostly between the Muslim's and Buddhists.

    Not a lot of clarity about the attack and rumoured the state had been warned about the attack by Indian and USA security forces which might lend credit to the ISIS claim - with 80+ detonators found in searches of houses when arrests were made.

    Some shock results in the Ukrainian presidential election. Though its been expected.

    A comedian/actor with no political experience but has trained as a lawyer has defeated the pro-EU president in a landslide victory getting between 72-73% of the vote.

    The outgoing president had been
    casting himself as a bulwark against Russian aggression and a champion of Ukrainian identity. While the new president hasnt really had much policy.

    It's a complex result and not as clear as my post might suggest. It's not a return to Russia or a rejection of the EU- who he seems to be favourable to too.

    In the main people didnt vote for him as much as they were voting against the pro-EU and anti-Russian former president. While he's connected through his entertainment TV productions to an exiled billionaire who owns that TV channel and has been central in the banking issues.

    Big issues seem to be more about a lack of tackling corruption within the state, while theres been a lot of dissatisfaction around billions pumped into the main bank to keep it a float and the IMF, sheer poverty is another issue with many emigrating to Poland for work and a better lifestyle.

    Heres two contrasting pieces in terms of tone and content on the election.

    This one below is about corruption in reference to Ukraine involving Joe Biden which has been brought into the US political realm.

    It looks like Georgia and Alabama are both wanting to use The Handmaid's Tale as a blueprint for how to run a society over there in the States...

    Not a fan of anti-abortion laws. I get that it's kind of murder, but damn…*not even rape babies or unviable pregnancies?

    only in the deep south of America in the bible belt.. Its non of any ones business if a woman choses to do what she wants with her body.With in reason. there should be a time limit to where an abortion is not permitted of course (well in most cases)

    So if a man rapes a woman in Alabama and gets her pregnant and she gets an abortion he'll be let out of prison before her?
